German Apfelkuchen - Apple Cake
Apfel Kuchen - Apples were sliced and layered over base recipe , then sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon and dobs of butter which would melt and then get crisp when cold. The base cake (made as a slab cake)was also used with plums on top, or streusel cake. Slab made many different cakes. Lots of eggs and butter but this was because my grandmother made trays of cakes to used! Would love base recipe!
